Humble Finally Launches The Humble Store

By - | Views: 12,904
The Humble Store - I have said before they would launch a store and they finally did, it also has a sale for the next 24 hours to celebrate!

Oddly they don't seem to have a DRM free filtering option, I thought that would be something they would keep a focus on, it is after-all one on the things people (including me) have fired shots at them for when launching big DRM'd bundles. So for this store not to have a DRM free option it is a little annoying.

One of the best things about this store is that they are already massively well known and indies will hopefully do pretty well on it! The next best thing is that still 10% of all sales go to charity and they have a running total as well, can't wait to see that go up and up!

It currently only has 5 games available for Linux, I hope this gets padded out as more developers who already use them agree to go onto the store. You should seriously check it out for the sales of the Linux games though, it's a great chance to pick up some cheap ones.

Current Games

Natural Selection 2
Prison Architect Alpha
Rogue Legacy
Euro Truck Simulator 2
Don't Starve

You can't seem to link directly to store items either as everything is done on single pages where the games name opens a panel, I hope they fix that so we can in future link directly. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Gaw! And I just bought Rogue Legacy for $15 off Steam!

They only have 9 games in the store, total? That's very miniscule, and I honestly thought they'd have all the backlog of things they have sold in the past. Am I looking in the wrong place?

QuoteNew sales coming tomorrow!
This leads me to believe that they're releasing titles to the store day-by-day for some period of time. Could be wrong, but that's what it looks like to me. I wonder if they'll push for Linux ports of some of these games (like Chivalry or Orcs Must Die 2).

We can only hope they'll push for more Linux ports. They're probably going to go through at least most of their old back catalog but are going to build hype for the store by adding a few game sales every day for a while to keep people checking in on the store.

Not that they need much hype being by far the most successful of the bundle sites.

You should start wishlisting the games you want, that way you'll get notify when they have a discounted sale. Also the big winter sale is coming soon.

Anyway if you really like the game and its developer gives good support, then you shouldn't be very regretful of having paid a few extra bucks. :)

at this point in time the developers need to decide on their own.

The dungeon defenders guys made the effort to port their Unreal engine game to linux (which is similar to orcs must die and uses the same engine as chivalry).

I hope EPIC starts making it as easy as Unity.

and If OMD2 doesn't come, at least I know dungeon defenders 2 is coming.

Will be supporting the studios that are making the efforts.

I'm not really. RL is worth every cent of the $15 I paid for it, and I'm more than happy to support the developers with that extra bit of change.

But, you know, when you find out something you bought not even 15 minutes previously is on sale elsewhere for half price, you can't help but feel a little gut punched. :P

Crap... I was just telling myself to save some money... crap crap...... Okay anyhow if there is one silver lining beyond the good price is that there are more Linux games than Apple!!

I want a slider to adjust wich charity gets how much of the 10%
HadBabits 12 Nov, 2013
I just can't hang on to my money anymore. Linux gaming used to mean I could auto budget by waiting for the next humble bundle every week or so, now games are coming out too fast for my wallet to keep up with!

But Rogue Legacy kicks ass, so I guess I'll suck it up :P
